Be ready for that first warm day.
You know that day.
That first warm day of spring.
When you leave your house and squint in the sunshine, turning your head towards the warmth like a flower bends towards the sun. When you walk down the street and see that guy in cargo shorts and Birkenstocks with a frisbee under his arm en route to the park. When a kid walks by eating and ice cream cone and you realize you're not wearing a hat and you're okay. When people seem to smile more and everyone is making eye contact and giving a knowing nod that says, "We made it."
Be ready for that day. Get your bike tuned-up now.

Holiday Kids Bike Bonanza & 2016 recap
The idea for the Holiday Kids Bike Bonanza was conceived of just before Thanksgiving. At the shops we've put thousands of kids on bikes, but we had never organized an off-site bike giveaway or sale. We gave ourselves four short weeks sandwiched between two major holidays to figure out the logistics, raise the funds, get the word out, and make it happen. We managed our expectations.
